Since telecommuting, I realized need for a desktop system. Have a pair for B&W DM302 bookshelf speakers. Need an integrated amp with decent AF/FM reception and 3 inputs (1 for iphone/ipad streaming, 1 for raspberry streams and 1 extra). Remote is not necessary as the amp will be within reach. Budget is $300.

Recommendations pl.

I am planning to use Pi just as a MPD player feeding the DAC. I have a Pi 3 lying around. If that doesnt give satisfactory results, shall get a NUC.
